Mahalo, Maui

The black sand beach at Waianapanapa State Park near Hana on Maui

The Richmond Family returns today to the wonderful world of impending snow and ice of Minnesota from the Hawaiian islands. The Lovely Anna and I renewed our wedding vows for our 20th anniversary on the 13th from a beautiful beach in West Maui, surrounded by family and friends. We then spent a week enjoying the island with everyone. Maui has always been our little home away from home, where the two of us spend a week a year in a timeshare. It was fun to share it with everyone.

Of course when you have 4 kids it never seems to completely go as planned. We spent Saturday night in the emergency room when son Thomas had an allergic reaction of some kind to some sushi at dinner. The hospital on Maui is on the east side at Kahului, about an hour away from where we were, so it was a long night. Thomas is okay and the reaction was not very strong. The ER trip was mostly as a precaution.

What would a vacation be without at least one story to tell.

Now it’s back to reality and the ol’ drawing board.
